Tunis Village is the perfect choice for a quick weekend getaway. Located in El Fayoum, this hidden gem allows you to escape the busy city life and immerse yourself in the beauty of nature. Situated in the oasis of Fayoum, on the way to Wadi Rayan, Tunis Village offers a breathtaking view of the desert from its hilltop position overlooking a large saltwater lake. It is truly one of the most stunning places in Egypt. Previously, Tunis was a little-known farming and fishing community on the southern shore of Lake Qaroun. However, it has its own unique charm - a small, incredibly beautiful, and surprisingly peaceful village. In the 1980s, a Swiss potter named Evelyn Porret discovered Tunis during her visit to Fayoum with her Egyptian friends. Captivated by its beauty, she decided to build her own country house and pottery workshop there.
